'o and his sexuality. there has never been an openly gay player in the nfl. could being gay affect someone's professional football career? >> if i could for one moment, i'd like to back up. i don't think in my opinion that the question was appropriate. in my opinion. that being said, do i think that professional major college sports is prepared for an openly gay athlete? i do believe that. and i certainly in my position as the head football coach at nevada if one of our players was openly gay, it wouldn't change my opinion of him one way or another. we are judged on whether we are taking care of business in the classroom, being productive as football players, and ultimately, our job to graduate players and win games. if a young man is doing those two things and being a responsible citizen, his sexual orientation, one way or another has no bearing on what what's going on. >> all right. coach polian, thank you for your time. i want to bring in drew pinskey. let me ask you. do you think that was a fair question? what do you think of manti te'o's response? >> i think it was a question she had
